With only two members and no bass player the White Stripes
certainly seemed like the ultimate makeshift band. So how is it
that this enigmatic couple--who publicize themselves as brother and
sister though official documents say they're
ex-husband-and-wife--became a multi-platinum musical sensation?
From their early days as the darlings of Detroit rock scene to
their current status as MTV celebs, they've defied expectations
every step of the way. How did it happen that the simple idea of
staying true to a lo-fi, blues-based sound became a revolutionary
idea in the age digital conformity and complex studio production?
"Fell in Love with a Band: The Story of the White Stripes "is the
first biography by a Detroit journalist who has followed their
career since the group's inception in 1997. From Meg White's novice
attempts at banging the drums to their current incarnation as the
face of indie rock. With never before seen photos and exclusive
interviews with members of Detroit bands like Blanche and The Von
Bondies, "Fell in Love with a Band" gets to the heart of this
enigmatic rock band and for the first time tells the real story of
their rise to fame and the power behind their sound.
